Woodside is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 91.36% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 13.12% of the workforce.

Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.
